Course Description

The Graduate Diploma in Brain and Mind Sciences provides focused education and training for the next generation of science, medical, nursing, psychiatry and psychology workforces, preparing them to meet the needs of those suffering from disorders of the brain and mind. The course will promote interdisciplinary research, encouraging investigation into disease in areas of the brain and mind. The course also draws on the strengths of the Brain and Mind Centre to assist you in your professional and clinical skills development.

In this course the core units of study provide you with an understanding of the link between basic neuroscience and clinical applications and interventions. This focus on translational research will offer you a broader application of the brain and mind sciences discipline and opportunity for collaboration and improved research outcomes. Elective units of study will then provide a high standard of specialised training in your chosen area.

The Graduate Diploma in Brain and Mind Sciences is embedded within the Master of Brain and Mind Sciences. The master's degree builds on concepts learned during the graduate diploma and graduate certificate. You may choose to complete the graduate diploma, or use it as a pathway into the master's degree in this discipline.
